Caves of Kesh Hike
We began the hike by going by way of the steel gate beside the automobile park. We then walked by way of a flat meadowy area till we met an indication turning us left and throughout a timber sty.
The stroll continues beneath the bottom of the mountain till it turns up sharp and really steeply towards the summit. The steep part could be very brief.
Be warned, one part is extraordinarily steep and has a really slippy gravel floor. We advise bringing some good climbing boots and strolling sticks because the footpath is extraordinarily steep for a brief part (100m). Halfway up the steep part, there’s a chair for a break. After the steep part, it ranges off in a short time and also you get spectacular views throughout Sligo.
